GIVE BACK: Volunteer on MLK Day 1/18 @ Osborn High School 12:30-4:30pm

Volunteer and Make a Difference on MLK Day (1/18) – A Day On, Not A Day Off

American Express, United Way for Southeastern Michigan and City Year Detroit are bringing together the community to celebrate diversity on Martin Luther King Day at Osborn High School on Detroit’s eastside.

From 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., students from Osborn and City Year will put together welcome kits for Freedom House Detroit, a temporary home for survivors of persecution from around the world seeking legal shelter in the United States and, in turn, will learn about immigrants in the their area through an informative presentation.

Additionally, community members are invited to participate in a beautification effort at Osborn that began in the fall. Volunteers will work on a variety of revitalization projects including painting classrooms and travel-related murals and creating a study area for Osborn students.
Register for this service project and others at under the Martin Luther King Day heading in the News section or by calling Volunteer Coordinator Doris Hendricks at (313) 226-9280.
